Bright ideas for office summer parties

The evenings are growing longer and the days warmer - it’s finally time - summer is coming. Increasingly, workplace summer parties have become an essential part of the employee social programme for many companies. Summer parties come without the traditions and expectations of Christmas parties, which gives them more scope as a tool to reward employees, facilitate team bonding and reinforce company culture and values.Summer parties can deliver a good return on investment, reigniting employee energy levels for the second half of the year, improving productivity and motivation.For many, the quintessential office summer parties consist of outdoor activities followed by canapes and cocktails in the orangery of a fine country house hotel, a well-appointed marquee in the grounds or a sunny roof-terrace gathering in the heart of the city. These are all excellent choices – and if you want to try something different – here are some popular options.Find your nearest venue for office summer partiesGive them a digital detoxSummer parties and activities are a chance to take your team away from their ‘always-on’ digital lives, to have some simple, heartfelt real-world outdoors fun.Digital detox summer parties are becoming increasingly popular. They create opportunities for meaningful connections between colleagues and can be incredibly cost-effective. Digital detox activities aren’t about gourmet food and fancy drinks in swanky venues, they’re about camp fire sing-alongs, toasting marshmallows while seated on logs, star-gazing, cooking your own food on a barbecue, telling stories about ghosts and mysteries, endless chatter and laughter and sleeping in a yurt or tipi under a cosy blanket. To help get the party into full swing, encourage your performers to bring their talent for fire-side entertainment – guitar strumming is particularly apt. In the morning, wake them with a hearty breakfast and strong coffee around the still-smouldering embers of the fire, and no matter what industry you’re in, your team will return to the office with a renewed sense of work/life balance and refreshed mental wellbeing.Sport themed summer partiesFor organisations seeking to promote health and wellness amongst their employees, sporting summer parties or outdoor office sports days can be an excellent option.Activities can include anything from rounders tournaments that pit different departments against each other, to school’s sports day themed competitions that induce more laughter than physical exertion.Remember, we’re not all Usain Bolt, so it’s best to ensure there are activities everyone can have fun competing in - water balloon tosses, three-legged race, egg and spoon race, potato sack races and the like, are great fun and require little athleticism.

Bright ideas for office summer parties



The evenings are growing longer and the days warmer - it’s finally time - summer is coming. Increasingly, workplace summer parties have become an essential part of the employee social programme for many companies. Summer parties come without the traditions and expectations of Christmas parties, which gives them more scope as a tool to reward employees, facilitate team bonding and reinforce company culture and values.

Summer parties can deliver a good return on investment, reigniting employee energy levels for the second half of the year, improving productivity and motivation.



For many, the quintessential office summer parties consist of outdoor activities followed by canapes and cocktails in the orangery of a fine country house hotel, a well-appointed marquee in the grounds or a sunny roof-terrace gathering in the heart of the city. These are all excellent choices – and if you want to try something different – here are some popular options.

Find your nearest venue for office summer parties

Give them a digital detox

Summer parties and activities are a chance to take your team away from their ‘always-on’ digital lives, to have some simple, heartfelt real-world outdoors fun.

Digital detox summer parties are becoming increasingly popular. They create opportunities for meaningful connections between colleagues and can be incredibly cost-effective. Digital detox activities aren’t about gourmet food and fancy drinks in swanky venues, they’re about camp fire sing-alongs, toasting marshmallows while seated on logs, star-gazing, cooking your own food on a barbecue, telling stories about ghosts and mysteries, endless chatter and laughter and sleeping in a yurt or tipi under a cosy blanket. To help get the party into full swing, encourage your performers to bring their talent for fire-side entertainment – guitar strumming is particularly apt. In the morning, wake them with a hearty breakfast and strong coffee around the still-smouldering embers of the fire, and no matter what industry you’re in, your team will return to the office with a renewed sense of work/life balance and refreshed mental wellbeing.

Sport themed summer parties

For organisations seeking to promote health and wellness amongst their employees, sporting summer parties or outdoor office sports days can be an excellent option.

Activities can include anything from rounders tournaments that pit different departments against each other, to school’s sports day themed competitions that induce more laughter than physical exertion.

Remember, we’re not all Usain Bolt, so it’s best to ensure there are activities everyone can have fun competing in - water balloon tosses, three-legged race, egg and spoon race, potato sack races and the like, are great fun and require little athleticism. Giving the winning team an extra day’s annual leave is a nice touch that will be much appreciated.

Theme Park Adventure

Getting your employees to let their hair down while enjoying the adrenalin-rush thrills of theme park rides and amusements, can be a rewarding way to breakdown departmental barriers. Many theme parks provide competitive corporate group rates and you’ll find it’s a huge benefit to have all the fun and excitement pre-made for you – inviting family members to enjoy the fun is a popular option. To make your summer office theme park day even more special, arrange a time and place for everyone to meet for a spirited team lunch.

Summer scavenger hunts

A scavenger hunt involves giving teams of colleagues the chance to compete in solving clues and tracking down objects. You can either do this around your local area or local park, or hire a large country house hotel for an activity-day in the grounds with a celebration summer party in the function room or marquee in the evening.

Set your challenges, then agree on a time limit of two to three hours, with all teams meeting in the same place after. Scavenger hunts can be personalised to your brand, industry sector or employee interests. Setting challenges that involve taking selfies, other photos and videos will ensure you have plenty of content for social sharing and presentations that reinforce the fun you all had together.

Depending on budget, you can either throw a large after party at a local venue, end the scavenger hunt in a pub and serve a buffet or simply meet back at the office for pizza, salad and drinks.

Summer nights – movie marathon

Your employees are sure to love a fun-filled outdoor movie party. All the equipment required to create an outdoor cinema in your office car park, grounds or a local outdoors venue is available to hire. Or you can easily turn the boardroom into a makeshift movie theatre with a few pieces of in-house audio-visual equipment. Using online survey sites to poll employees on which movie or movies to enjoy together, ensures everyone is happy with the choice, and then it’s simply a case of throwing in a little outside catering of burgers and hotdogs and there’s nothing stopping you, let the action roll.

Summer parties are a low-cost way to bring your team together in a structured, yet fun and rewarding way. At CYE, we love summer parties, they give everyone something new to look forward to, so I hope these ideas give you a good start.

Strata acquires Trinity Event Solutions
21/06/24 Strata acquires Trinity Event Solutions

Strata, the award-winning brand experience agency, has acquired Trinity Event Solutions, the venue procurement and event management agency. This latest acquisition boosts Strata’s ambitious growth plans, cementing its commitment to providing clients with full-service support and delivery.

Founded in 2006 by Jacqui Kavanagh, Trinity Event Solutions is a venue finding agency with extensive experience and a strong customer base in the pharma, legal, financial and retail markets.

Strata is on a mission to strengthen and broaden its client offering, adding new divisions and businesses to the group that complement the agency’s already wide-ranging breadth of services.

The agency has always understood that the right venue choice is paramount to the successful delivery of events. Therefore, its acquisition of Trinity Event Solutions – with its deep venue insight – is both a strategic and pivotal move for the group.

Simon Hambley, CEO of Strata, said: “I am incredibly excited and proud to be bringing the amazing Trinity team into the Strata Group family. We have been considering a partnership acquisition in the venue search and management sector for a while, not only to meet growing client needs but to capitalise on an area we haven’t touched on much in the past: Strategic Meetings Management.”

Hambley continued: “We have worked with Jacqui and her team for some time now, and recognised that Trinity’s drive for quality, responsiveness and customer service matched our own. A strong cultural fit and ethos are so important in today’s modern business world that this new partnership feels right. It gives the Strata business access to experienced talent and technology and greater bargaining power and scale, meaning we can go to market and offer strategic meetings management services at volume.”

Trinity Event Solutions prides itself on working as a seamless extension of any team. This is why the agency has many long-standing global clients. It has a strong client focus and an empowered team of proven experts who have devoted years to forging lasting relationships.

Strata serves its extensive portfolio of clients by offering a broad range of event services, including creative, design, planning and execution expertise, but continued client wins have driven demand for venue search and management. By acquiring Trinity Event Solutions, Strata can further develop an exciting blueprint for its future.

Hambley added: “The timing of this acquisition is set for the true re-emergence of business event planning post-pandemic. The international business meetings markets are forecast to double in size over the next eight years and the winning combination of Strata and Trinity is ideally placed to service the conference, congress and strategic meetings management markets as they hit their stride.”

On the acquisition, Jacqui Kavanagh, founder and CEO of Trinity Event Solutions, said: “I have known Simon and the Strata team for many years and have admired their approach and passion for excellence in how they operate their business.

“I am really excited for the Trinity team to become part of the Strata Group, as they truly reflect the cultural values that have underpinned the journey that Trinity has been on for 17 years.”

Tracy Winsworth, Managing Director of Trinity Event Solutions, said: “The Trinity team and I are ready to grow and take our next step. Joining the Strata Group will accelerate this growth and I am sure our venue sourcing and procurement expertise will strengthen the group’s position in the market and stand it in good stead for the future.”

Strata’s acquisition of Trinity Event Solutions follows its acquisition of On Event Production in April 2023 and more recently, its recent appointment of Caroline Lumgair Wiseman as Group Head of Strategic Meeting Solutions.

Lumgair Wiseman will work closely with the Trinity Event Solutions team as she has been specifically tasked with helping Strata build a stronger meetings management proposition to directly meet client demand.

EDGE Venues will remain independent and continue to be led by Jacqui Kavanagh. She will maintain collaborative relationships with both Trinity Event Solutions and Strata.

  • 21/06/24 Lime Venue Portfolio and Stress Matters Launch Neurodiversity Toolkit

    Lime Venue Portfolio and Stress Matters have expanded their partnership with the launch a new Neurodiversity Toolkit at The Meetings Show this week. The guide has been created using the expertise of Stress Matters, and as part of Lime Venue Portfolio’s own strategy of ‘Betterment’ across the industry.

    The Toolkit is already being rolled out across the Lime Venue Portfolio team and will now be available to support clients and customers across the group’s 80+ venues. In the last few years, the brand has bought new intelligence to the industry, including insight around ‘sustainability through food’, ‘event legacy and impact’, and is now looking towards accessibility, specifically Neurodiversity.

    Earlier this year, the Lime Venue Portfolio team, including venue teams from across the group’s portfolio, took part in workshops, ran by Stress Matters, to help educate themselves on this subject. Now Lime Venue Portfolio is using the newly produced Toolkit to continue its own learning, but also to provide open-sourced information for others within the industry.

    The aim is for the brand to become proactive industry ambassadors, as well as a source of credible information, that help make events more accessible in every way. The brand has already widely adopted Mental Health First Aid training across its business. Now, this more specialised knowledge will continue to evolve this inclusivity focused approach.

    Commenting on the project, Laura Capell-Abra, Founder Stress Matters, said: “The discussion around diversity, equality, and inclusivity (DEI), has increasingly become more important. Whilst this rightly focuses on race, gender, and sexuality, it’s also essential that these efforts ensure the inclusion and accommodation for neurodiversity. Lime Venue Portfolio and Stress Matters have joined forces to help educate event professionals in understanding and encouraging neurodiverse inclusivity in events.”

    The toolkit itself includes practical strategies and resources to help ensure that events are accessible and enjoyable for all participants. From sensory-friendly environments to clear communication practices. Each recommendation within the guide is grounded in the principles of empathy, understanding, and respect for neurodiverse perspectives.

    Laura continues, “Neurodiversity encompasses a wide range of neurological variations, including autism, ADHD, dyslexia, and many more. Every individual is individual and wants and needs different things to thrive in a working environment. By embracing neurodiversity in event planning, you not only foster a culture of inclusivity but also unlock the potential for innovation and creativity.”

    Jo Austin, Sales Director, Lime Venue Portfolio, added: “We’re incredibly proud of this work, and the role we’ve played in it. It’s a sensitive subject, it’s been a real learning curve for us, one we’re delighted to have the support of Stress Matters in, and we really are just at the start of our journey. This is about making events better, more comfortable, and more welcoming for everybody, but it’s also about organisers having more conversations with their delegates. However, it’s already made us a better team, a happier group and we’re on a really fulfilling journey that means something to us beyond our day-to-day jobs.”

    The Neurodiversity Toolkit is available this week through the Lime Venue Portfolio stand at The Meetings Show, to find out more click on this link.

The new products focus on the recently launched spaces The Edge and Jimmy’s Bar with the venue also offering exclusive pitch and stage-facing bedrooms for those looking to stay on for unforgettable leisure experiences.

The sport is being punctuated by live concerts from world-renowned bands such as Green Day and the Foo Fighters.

These latest business and leisure packages are just some of a number of incentives the venue is offering event organisers following the business's £75 million investment project, which included the hotel extension.

It's part of our ongoing commitment to enhancing our facilities and providing an exceptional experience for our M&E guests."
